Improved Auto-complete, now with Snippets
This article was originally published on the ShareLaTeX blog and is reproduced here for archival purposes.
We've just rolled out an update to our auto-complete feature which should feel a lot more polished. It also now has 'snippets' built in, which are short sections of commonly used LaTeX code.
Just start typing a command and the menu will pop up with possible selections.
The new auto-complete uses fuzzy matching, so you can type shorthand like
TABto quickly create a figure environment, or
\tabfor a table.
We'd like to say a huge thank you to the team and contributors behind the Ace Editor who wrote most of this functionality in the first place.
